Chapter 12 Kaito is Welcomed by young feline girls

“My house?”

 

Sena tilted her head as she looked blankly at me.

 

“Since it's a rare occasion, I thought eating together won’t be that bad. Is it fine with you?”

 

When I asked it once more, this time Sena showed hesitation.

 

“But, my house is not somewhere you can rest comfortably, you know? It’s not even a proper house. My sister would be there too”

 

“I don’t mind it. Despite my looks, I’m an adventurer. Small things like that won’t affect me.”

 

“...I see. I understand! Then, please follow me!”

 

Sena said so while smiling and started walking after placing the dismantled rock boar meat inside her large back.

 

Somehow, I was able to obtain an invitation to her house without her feeling suspicious. If I make a contact with her little sister, I might be able to understand about her sister’s condition.

 

While I was thinking, Balaina flew her telepathic message that was introduced by Toyokumo towards me.

 

“Are you planning to save Sena’s sister?”

 

“Yeah, If I can. Was that bad?”

 

“It’s not bad but, with your current items in hand you won’t be able to heal her”

 

“I know that. That’s why I will bring Toyokumo and heal her”

 

“How will you explain the circumstance to her? ”

 

“I will try to talk her into understanding my situation”

 

“I thought you didn’t want anyone else riding Toyokumo?”

 

I was forced to think more, after Balaina’s continuous questions. What she is saying is the truth. I really don’t want anyone to ride Toyokumo, if that was possible. This is because by allowing someone in, there is a danger that this world’s truth will be revealed to the public.

 

However, so what. So what, if that were to happen. I should save lives that could be saved. Let’s think about the future in future. Even though I, who has merged with Toyokumo, can be said to have become an all knowing being, I was but a human before the merging happened. I can’t keep killing my true feelings and only look at things in a big picture.

 

“..Well..I will try to make do with what I can”

 

“Captain Kaito is really a credulous person”

 

“Shut it”

 

“But, I do not hate this part of you”

 

“Well, thanks I guess….what’s with you all of a sudden?”

 

However, Balaina didn’t answer and continued walking next to me who was following Sena’s footsteps.

 

It seems like it is indeed, difficult to understand her thought process. There are part of her that are easy to understand like, when she is hungry, wants to play, sleepy, wants to laze around; but at the same time, I don’t understand what she is thinking deep inside her.

 

I wonder what the person who designed her was thinking?

 

It's all a mystery. Even then, it's not a mystery that’s full of charm but rather a boring and tedious personality that’s hard to understand.


 

 

“We’ve arrived. This is my house”

 

I was guided by Sena into her house --- what seemed more like a yellow tent with multiple patches, located not in the city but in the outskirts of the city wall. I believe, this plce must be where beastmen live. I don’t see them but, I feel the aura of caution against me, the human who entered this place.

 

“I’m back! Big sister is back guys!”

 

When Sena called, two Felper (feline person) around the age of 5 came hopping out. And the two hugged Sena at the same time.

 

“Ne~ Ne~ Welcome back nya!” “It was lonely nya!”

 

“Alright alright. I’m sorry for making you guys wait. But, we got tons of meat this time”

 

“Great nya!” “I love meat nya!”

 

Sena carelessed the while displaying a loving expression towards the two. The two seems to be enjoying as they made *gorogoro* sound with their throat. This is such a cute scene to look at, it's cute to the point it would make a great painting. What greeted me was much different from what I imagined. I’m guessing they are Sena’s little sisters but….

 

“Umm, Sena? Are they your little sister?”

 

“Yes, you are right. The white haired one is Shiro, the black one is Kuro. Guys, come and greet our guest mr Kaito.

 

When Sena told asked the two to greet me, it seemed as though, they finally realized my presence, and hissed at me with *Sha~* sound, as they erected their tails tall and stiff.

 

“Why is a human here nya!” “There is a big dog too nya!”

 

To their rather, cautious reaction, Sena without any hesitation hit their head real hard.

 

“You guys! That’s rude to our customer!”

 

“But, he is a human nya!” “Human is a bad guy nya!”

 

“Mr Kaito is indeed a human but, he is truly a kind person? He also saved my life too. That’s why be respectful and have some manner”

 

“Is that so nya!” “Than, he is a good human nya”

 

The two who were hit with Sena’s rationale on why I’m a good person, saw a sudden turn of attitude and hugged me out of nowhere.

 

“Wawawawa, what is it?”

 

“Nice to meet you Kaito nya” “We welcome you nya!”

 

I looked at Sena for help as I didn’t know what to do being hugged by these little girls who had a rather unique sun like odour.

 

“Se, Sena, can you do something about it”

 

“Aaaah, I’m sorry! Now, you two get off from him!”

 

The two who were attached to me like a glue, seemed to have changed their target and went for Balaina.

 

“A big doggo nya!” “Fluffy doggo nya!”

 

Kids are a living organism that doesn’t have a limit as the two went on to touch and pull Balaina’s, whiskers, tails, ears and even her cheeks.

 

“Kyan Kyan! Stop, please stop!”

 

“It talked!? This doggo spoke nya!” “Amazing nya!”

 

The brats failed to listen to her as they continued on with their biggest crime.

 

“No! Please stop! You bratty cats! Uwawawa, where are you touching! That’s not somewhere you can touch!”

 

Sena was about to go help Balaina who was desperately trying to run away, but I shook my head and stopped her.

 

“It’s fine. She is a strong one”

 

“Ehh… But, she will be played to her death, you know?”

 

“It’s fine. She is a strong one”

 

“...if you, the owner say so I guess...”

 

“Wait! Are you kidding me!? Please save me!”

 

I’m sorry Balaina. Please be the little brats toy for now. Your sacrifice is essential for my peace during my time in here.

 

“It’s noisy… what’s going on?”

 

While we were playing this little charade among ourselves, a little girl seemingly a felper (feline person) appeared from Sena’s tent looking sluggish . She had a similar silver hair as Sena and a rather determined face. She seems to be about 10 year old.

 

“Aah, Nao, I’m sorry for being a little loud. Is your body fine?”

 

“Unn, it's fine. Big sister, welcome back. ...who is the person over there?”

 

“This person here is  Mr Kaito. In truth he---”

 

While Sena busied herself explaining how we met and all, I couldn’t take my eyes away from Nao. There is no mistake, she is suffering Mana impendiment. Her face is a great evidence, as a bluish purple pattern could be seen on it.

 

It’s not that I know it merely for its information, but rather my sister were also afflicted with this very illness and died, hence you could say I’ve experience the loss caused by this disease.

 

 

“Thank you very much for taking care of my sister”

 

Nao who heard about the incident, bowed deeply and said her thanks to my part in play.

 

I’ve been invited to the small yet clean tent, while Sena went out to give out the meat to the surrounding people living in their respective tents.

 

Being in the house without its owner feels a bit stifling and all but, fortunately, the little brats are playing with Balaina, and Nao is a very calm young girl.

 

“No, No, I was just passing by so you could say I was obliged to do so, thus there is no need for thanking me. Anyhow, I apologize for the sudden intrusion to your house.”

 

“We do not mind. It's obvious thing to return the gratitude”

 

Uum, what a mature girl. Sena, herself is well mannered despite looking like a 16 year old girl, however for Nao, she does appear to be far more mature and seems as though she is an adult. But, when I imagine how, even a calm and mature girl like her would start speaking with an accent after panicking, it makes me feel warm and happy.

 

“You said you were Nao chan right? I heard you had an illness, is your body fine right now? From what I heard you became well and strong after drinking the medicine”

 

“Yes, thanks to the money lent by who my sister described as a human man, I was completely healed. I’m recovering beyond imagination, since I couldn’t even lift my arms before I drank the medicine.”

 

“I see. That’s good then”

 

I hid the bitter feeling and nodded with a smile. Sena and Nao doesn’t know. They don’t know what kind of illness the magic blockage is.

 

With the current technology, this illness cannot be healed. This is because, the problem originates from the body’s mana storage is creating unnecessary surplus. You can temporary stop the seizure but it doesn’t solve the entirety of its problem.

 

That’s why the mana impediment is feared to be incurable. This knowledge seems to be not known among the felper (feline person). But, I won’t jeer at them for their ignorance.Since,  Sena earnestly relied on the human with this very knowledge. Even so, the human, doctor she relied on left out the most important part and left after giving her the medicine with a exorbitant price of 30 gold.

 

I do not know the reason for his action. Maybe, he felt guilty since he didn’t expect her to be able to earn 30 gold coin. Or maybe, he thought about extorting more money after the medicine wore off.

 

No matter what, it's a story of a irresponsible man.

 

“....even among humans”

 

While I was pondering deep inside, Nao mumbled something.

 

“There are good people. There are people like you, Mr Kaito, or even the person who lent my sister the money. We shouldn't judge a person merely based on their race...”

 

“..You’re right. Where there is a bad person, there is always a good person. That’s what makes us humans.”

 

“I see. I’m sorry for talking like I know everything….”

 

I felt complicated at Nao, who seemed ashamed. Most likely, despite her understanding, it must be hard for her to accept it. Just imagining what led to her current belief, makes my heart clench in pain.

 

That’s why I made a determination. No matter what, I will save this young girl.

Chapter 11b Kaito smacks his lips at the roasted meat (Part B)

“Not fine. Please grill it. Captain Kaito, please do it with haste”

 

“Eeh, in here? ….alright, alright. What a pain in the ass”

 

I reluctantly started preparing for grilling the heart after being requested by Balaina. I gathered the fallen leaves from the surrounding trees and light it with the photon repulser.

 

We didn’t have any iron plate or a net, so I took the branches from the ground and pierced it through the heart, the size of three fist, after splitting it into half.

 

An indescribable smell came from the grilling heart, and Balaina drooled with her eyes sparkling with expectation. If I must say, I also started drooling towards my meat that I haven’t had for so long.

 

Soon, the heart were grilled to a crisp condition. I threw one with the branch still intact to Balaina, she caught it great dexterity, and started gobbling on it.

 

“Gafu Gafu! Gafu Gafu!”

 

As always a eating it with great haste. Well then, I should eat it too. After a big bite, inside of my mouth exploded with rich flavour of the meat.

 

Delicious! Too Delicious! What is this!? Was Rock Boar’s heart always this tasty!? Is it the Dog Food!? Is it because of that trash that anything tastes good!?

 

Even thought I didn’t even put on any salt or spices, but it terrifingly doesn’t smell bad nor is the taste too dense. Bite after bite, the broth and the blood that keeps squeezing out of the meat just makes me crave for more.

 

This is not something that I craving for, but this is a huge hit! No, maybe this is what I was craving for! I am currently not a human or a Whale, rather a Wolf! A wolf that feeds on the meat!

 

“Fufu, is it that tasty? I’m glad”

 

Sena looked at me with motherly eyes and smiled, and seeing that I started feeling shameful.

 

“Unn, it's delicious. I’m kinda sorry, for eating it all by ourselves”

 

“It’s fine. As long as you enjoyed it”

 

By the time I noticed, the rock boar’s hide was being skinned. The hide peeled off really smoothly and in no time the rock boar became naked with no skin. She is using a really sharp knife.

 

“You are using a good knife”

 

“It’s my mom’s keepsake. I don’t know much about it but from what I know, it is a great knife that uses the power of magic.”

 

“Oh, I apologize, I didn’t know it was a sensitive topic. My bad”

 

“No no, it's been far too long since she left the world”

 

“I see….Do you have like, any other family member?”

 

“I have a sister”

 

“Is you sister well?”

 

“About that, she was suffering under a illness but thanks to the kind man, who let us borrow enough gold coin, she is now all healed”

 

“I see. ...That’s really good for you.”

 

I felt my chest warm up. That’s good. Truly good.

 

“...Umm, did something happen?”

 

I realized that I was crying after being asked with such concern. Not good. Somehow, I’m quite teary as of lately. Is it because of my age?

 

“Aa, no it's fine. The smoke hit my eyes”

 

“I see, that’s good. Oh, right! There is something I wanted to ask mr Kaito, is it okay?”

 

“Ask me? What is it?”

 

“It's about the person who lended us the money, but I failed to ask for his name and we split apart. That’s why I want to find his whereabout ”

 

“I see. But, I don’t think I would be of any help. I don’t really have much relationship with people”

 

“Is..that so. Of course right. I guess, i should just search for it step by step”

 

“No, I don’t think that’s necessary. That guy didn’t tell you the name, maybe it must’ve been some out of whim, it may even be a nuisance for you to search for him.”

“But, I can’t just leave as it is, since I was gifted a thirty gold coin...”

 

“If that’s what you want, why not thank him when you meet him in coincidence. If you are destined, you would meet with him someday”

 

“Is that really fine?”

 

“I believe this should be fine”

 

I concluded like that.

 

Dressing of the meat was over while we were talking. A great dexitiry and speed. If this wasn’t the skill of the beastsman, and rather a human, he would be able to make living out of just hunting. But, beastsman can’t sell the meat they acquired. It's because there rumours that the beastsmen are dirty and hunts by using mysterious poison.

 

These are just the image created by the people who hate the beastsmen. I don’t think Sena is dirty. Rather, I compared to the normal adventurers I think she cares herself cleanliness more than them.

 

What a cruel story. No, a foolish story.

 

I who knows the truth about this world, feels only anger and sadness towards this.

 

“Mr. Kaito, I’m done preparing the meat, please tell me the parts you want”

 

Sena said so as she pointed at the store ready rock boar.

 

“Alright. I will select it then”

 

At that moment, curiosity perked.To being with, what was Sena’s illness?

 

“Hey, Sena. If your fine with it can you tell me what was your sister’s illness? What part of her was ill?”

 

“Eh? Aah, I don’t know much but the doctor told me that she was under “mana blockage” illness, an illness that causes her mana to go crazy”

 

“Mana..blockage”

 

“Yes.But thanks to the money borrowed, she is all well!”

 

I suddenly felt dizziness swallow me. That is because I know it. Mana blockage cannot be healed. The medicine can only prolong the time before the attack.

 

That’s why I said it without much thought

 

“Sena, can you share me the meat in your house?”

 

Even if she is under a incurable disease, I --Toyokumo, should be able to save her, but to do so….

Chapter 11a Kaito smacks his lips at the roasted meat (Part A)

“Well then, please wait for a bit while I dismantle the meat”

 

With that said, Sena held onto the rope that were tied on Rock Boar’s hind leg.

 

“We can’t dress the meat in here, so let’s change our position”

 

“Aa, your right, we should do that”

 

I nodded and looked at the corpses of the men that were buried in the ground. I thought of creating a grave for them for an instant, but I decided otherwise. Even if I were to create a grave for them, they will be dug and ransacked by wild carnivorous animals. I’m sure they wouldn’t be happy, seeing the man who killed them bury out of courtesy.

 

That’s why I decided to silently pray for them. No matter how bad the person was, I believe they should at least have the right to have their soul rest in peace. If there is such things as next life, than I hope they live the right path.

 

“Mr Kaito, over here~”

 

Being tugged by Sena’s call, I moved my eyes away from the corpses. When I looked at Sena, she’s already moved quite far. As expected of beastman, she easily dragged the rock boar, that has the weight of around two adults.

 

I troffed to her, and helped her carry the rope. No matter how strong she is, It would be bad if I let a young girl like her do all the hard work.

 

“I will help you. Let’s carry it together”

 

“I’m fine doing it by myself you know?”

 

“Even then, it's faster if we carry it together”

 

“I guess that’s true. Then, I will borrow your strength”

 

Sena smiled like a blooming flower and nodded. In reality, I could just use my portable gravity control device and I can transport it easier, but that would ruin her effort. She is trying to return the gratitude, so it would be bad for me to meddle with it.

 

“Oi, you also help by pushing it”

 

Hearing my order, Balain who was walking while being distracted by the butterflies, walked towards me looking really reluctant and started pushing the rock boar with her body.

 

“She is such a clever and well mannered dog. What is her name?”

 

“I am Balaina. I’m not a dog. I am a proud Wolf”

 

“It talked!!!!!!”

 

Sena’s eyes opened widely in great surprise after hearing Balaina answer her question.

 

Aaah, obviously, she would be surprised.

 

“This guy right here, she is my tamed monster, so it can speak through the power of magic”

 

It’s not like I can say that she is a creation of the God’s era’s technology. It seems like Sena believed my barely plausible lie.

 

“Ha~, I see nya. That is amazinya”

 

“Eh? Nya?”

 

“No, no! I’m sorry, my accent came out because i was careless...nn!”

 

Towards Sena who caughed to hide her shame, I smiled despite feeling a bit sorry. Now that I think about it, the feline people did indeed have their own accent.

 

“It, it's not something you laughed at!”

 

“Sorry sorry. It's that, your accent came, out of nowhere, so”

 

“I’m fine when I’m being careful but...ha….”

 

“I used to get made fun of during my early days out of my home in the countryside”

 

“He~, is that so. Mr Kaito can use amazing magics, and is very refined, so I thought you are master from some amazing family.”

 

“Who, me!? No way! I’m a poor farmer’s son”

 

I guess, if she thought I’m refined, it's probably because of attaining tons of knowledge in Toyokumo. And maybe, because I bath three times a day.

 

We walked to the dry riverbed while talking about silly things. The dressing of the rock boar began as we sat on the clean and beautiful riverbed.

 

 

“I will prepare the meat here, since in here we can use the water”

 

Sena tied the rope to the branch of a tall tree, and with great power, she hang the rock boar.

 

Hmm, an immense power from such a delicate body.

 

“Even though we’ve already let the blood, if you stand so close you might get dirty so please you should move away from here.”

 

I heeded on her adivice and moved to a suitable distance. I’m already used to the bloods since I used to be an adventurer and all, but I don’t see any reason to decline her good will.

 

Sena wielded her knife that was in her waist and started cutting through the rock boar’s stomach. The Rock Boar’s skin may be tough, but its stomach has the similar toughness as a normal boar so it's soft. There was nothing that blocked the way of her sharp knife as it split the stomach.

 

Soon her knife reached the lower body part, and without much resistance, she was able to cut the boar in half. As soon as she cut the lower body part, large number of internal organs fell out. Its diaphragm too were cut, and the rock boar’s became an empty corpse.

 

“Do you have any internal organ you would like? Its liver is very delicious”

 

“No, it's fine. It would be great if you could spare some breast or rib meat, and that would be it”

 

Balaina came poking at me, who declined the offer.

 

“Captain Kaito, I would like to eat it. Please ask for some”

 

“Aa, is that so? Than, can I have some?”

 

“I understand. What part would you like”

 

“I want the heart”

 

Sena nodded and took the heart from the internal organs. She then, came to our way.

 

“Is it fine with it being raw?”

Chapter 10 Kaito saves the Feline girl once again

In the place where we arrived, we saw a girl wearing a hood, and few man that seems to surround that girl. I don’t understand the situation but the atmosphere gives a bad vibe.

 

“To dare hunt in our territory, you’ve got quite a gut. Listen, brat”

 

The large man, seemingly the leader of the group, looked down at the young girl and placed the girl under coercion. Next to the young girl, a rock boar’s corpse laid there, mostly likely what she hunted.

 

I judged that these guys are gangsters that insists on their absolute right to hunt in this forest by claiming that it's their territory. They have quite good equipment, I guess, they are around C ranked adventurer. They are group of troublesome to meet with.

 

This Mysterious Flame forest is administered by the adventurer's guild, therefore, it is a free hunting ground. Not only adventurers, but even common person can come and hunt here freely. Nonetheless, there exists bastards like this that plunders weaker adventurers and generally people weaker than them, just because there aren’t any guards or militant that protects the hunters.

 

Naturally, at this kind of problems, adventurer’s guild must punish them but, this area’s adventurer are infamous for being useless, so it’s a waste of time to even report them. In reality, I was one of those who suffered under these kind of people. I still vividly remember very similar situation happening to me. That was such a bad experience….

 

“Are you listening, aah! Hand over your prey quickly!”

 

“N, no I don’t want to! This, this is something I hunted!”

 

The young girl tried to throw out her chest, trying not to lose out in the confrontation. However, this turned the situation from bad to worse.

 

“I see. It seems like you want to get hurt. I will let you taste the pain that only woman feels”

 

The big man laughed disgustingly and his friends followed suit as they became rawdy. Against a prey called a young girl, they cheered loudly. Not good. The young girl also must’ve felt it, so she was going back step by step.

 

I can’t continue watching! I must help her!

 

The young girl was about to escape the same time I was about to jump to help.

 

“Otto!! I won’t let you escape”

 

The large man caught the young girl who jumped backward by her arm. At that moment, the girl’s hood were removed and everyone except the young girl were taken by a surprise.

 

“You…..”

 

The big man became maddened as he bit his lips.

 

“You were a beastman!”

 

That’s right, the girl was a beastman. On top of her silver hair was a triangular beast’s ear. On top of it, in her cute face there exists characteristics that reminds me of a cat. Finally, her tail that were hidden before were showing from her rear.

 

No matter how you look at it, she is a beastsman ---a feline girl. And, I know this young feline girl.

 

“You, what are you inferior beastman doing in the human’s territory!”

 

The large man shouted in anger with his spits flying everywhere, possibly due to his conscious discrimination against beastmen.

 

“Even a beastsman is allowed to hunt in this forest! I didn’t do anything that is wrong! So please, move aside and le me out!”

 

What the girl is saying is correct. But that is not the point. The opponent is not the people this kind of correctness is honored.

 

“Shut up! You dirty beastman dare order the almighty human around!”

 

“No, I wasn’t…...”

 

“If you were a human, I would’ve stayed a night a with you and let you out, but the story is different if you are a beastman. I will torture you till you die and will feed your corpse to the dogs later on.”

 

Saying so the man unsheasts his sword from his waist. The surrounding men also radiated a killing intent.

 

“Stop it. Don’t you dare lay a hand on that girl”

 

I went in front of these beasts and told them to stop.

 

“What the hell. Who the hell are you and where did you come from?”

 

The trashbags sight all laid on me. But, I don’t plan on answering his question.

 

“I will count to three. You human garbages better get out of my sight before I finish counting to three”

 

“Who’s a human garbage, you shitty brat!”

 

“One”

 

“Oi, let’s kill this arrogant brat first!”

 

“Two”

 

“Don’t you move from there, you shitty brat! I will minch you to death!”

 

“Three”

 

I’ve finished counting till 3. However, these human garbages were still there. Not only that but they seemed to be rushing at me with a crazy speed.

 

Well then, I guess there is no longer any need for mercy.

 

“Portable Gravity control device, increase the opponent’s gravity by 100 times”

 

In that instant, with a *Zun* sound these guys who were trying to attack me all sinked into the ground. This was because I activated the attack mode of the portable gravity control device and increased the gravity of their body by 100 times. They probably couldn’t even feel the pain. Their internal organs bursted with their bones turning into powder. They died being unable to cope with the injury.

 

Not even one survived. They died without being able to scream their death throes.

 

I do not regret killing them. If I left them be, they would trouble more people. Letting them leave alive, would be a sin in itself. It’s not my first time killing a human, as I’ve gone to thief subjugation missions. However, I just feel a bit heavy.

 

Balaina licked my hand as if she was trying to make me feel better.

 

“*Ku~n*”

 

I calmed my heart by taking in a deep breath, and looked at the young girl.

 

“That was quite a disaster huh. Are you alright?”

 

“Eh, aa, yes...somehow...”

 

The girl nodded multiple times despite looking little confused.

 

“Um, Umm, did you do this?”

 

“Aa. I couldn’t just leave them be”

 

“Is it….magic?”

 

“Something like that”

 

“I...see. Um, thank you very much for helping me!”

 

The young girl bowed deeply in gratitude.

 

“I don’t know how I should return this gratitude”

 

“I didn’t do something that needs to be thanked. No matter what, somebody had to punish those guys. It's just that, nothing more nothing less.”

 


“But you saved my life so I would like to thank you with something”

 

“Oh, well if you say so….”

 

My eyes wandered off to the rock boar’s corpse that was next to her.

 

“If so, then can you spare me some of that boar’s meat?”

 

“Of course!”

 

The girl wholeheartedly smiled, and clapped her hands.

 

“Now that I think about it , I haven’t introduced myself yet. I am Sena. Umm, can I know your name too?”

 

I nodded as I smiled bitterly.

 

“My name is Kaito. Nice to meet you, Sena”

 

Geez, this world is truly full of coincidences.

Chapter 9 Kaito Hunts on the Surface

“I want to eat a meat!”

 

AFter the dragon attack incident, I opened up about what I was feeling. Against my proclamation, Balaina looked death cold at me as she gobbled down on the dog food.

 

“What’s with the look!”

 

“Gobble...gobble….gobble...gobble”

 

“Come on, are you ignoring me now, Balaina?”

 

“...Gobble...please...don’t...gobble...talk to me when I’m eating”

 

“Umm, I’m sorry”

 

This mongrel that is a support ai is becoming arrogant as days go by. Maybe it's time for me to set the hierarchy in this place. Oh well, this is not the most important thing to do as of right now. I don’t care about this mongrel. What’s really important is that I want to eat meat!

 

First of all, I was supposed to be able to enjoy the cloud fish, famed to be amazingly delicious, but, that crappy dragon interrupted with it's Breathe, that drove away the fishes. Even the surrounding fishes not limited to the one I caught seemed to have swam away in fright. That’s why I couldn’t even catch a single fish and is forced to eat dog food.

 

I was watching a cooking themed hologram movie, and then out of nowhere, a supremely delicious looking steak came on. A beautiful ruby colored lean meat were being grilled making juicy sound. Just looking at it made me imagine the taste spreading in my mouth.

 

Unn, not good. Just thinking about it is making my stomach rumble. Anyhow, I knew I absolutely needed to eat the meat when I laid my eyes on it. However, there is no cattle in this ship that will grant me some great meat. Then, you might ask what should I do? The answer is simple. It’s hunting! I should descend to the ground and hunt!

 

Deciding so, I prepped for the necessary procedures in haste. First, close quarter weapon. I found this inside the ship. A hand gun, Photon repulser is what I will use. I will use high frequency knife for dismantling the meant.

 

These two weapons are dangerous, thereby I’ve completed a training for it. Well then, now that I’ve finished the preparation, let’s head out to the hunting ground. The hunting ground is the forest right underneath this ship, called Mysterious flaming forest.

 

I’ve gone there multiple time during my time as an adventurer. Rock Boar, a greatly edible monster, inhabits the forest. It's a perfect ground for getting a meat.

 

While I was standing on top of the deck, checking the landing coordinate and activating the portable gravity control device, Balaina came looking interested.

 

“Captain Kaito, where are you heading out to?”

 

“Where to? I already told you, I’m going to obtain a meat. Hunting! I’m going Hunting!”

 

“Hou. You are working hard. I’m expecting a great souvenir”

 

I caught Balaina by her neck as she about to go back to the ship, after leaving behind those words.

 

“Balaina~~, where do you think you are going~? Let’s go for a hunt together~”

 

“No thank you, I will have to leave out on this one. It's necessary for someone to stay in the ship to look after it.”

 

“That isn’t a necessity is it? You can just you the remote control system, and there won’t be any problem”

 

“N, no, but….”

 

“Shut up! You are coming! Come and help the hunt!”

 

While holding onto Balaina, took out elastic oxygen mask and equipped on both of us. And without any signal, I jumped from Toyokumo’s back.

 

“Nooooooooooooooo!”

 

Against the sudden dive from the high altitude, Balaina screamed as loudly as she could. This guy, now that I think about it, her personality was set as a girl.

 

My satisfaction against the usual impudent Balaina, decreased in reaction to her unexpected scream.

 

Above all, it feels good penetrating the clouds with high speed as I fell to the ground surface. Of course, we couldn’t just continue dropping to the surface at this speed, and soon enough, the previously set portable gravity control device activated automatically and slowed us down.


 

The speed decreased as we got closer to the ground, and finally when we thought it reached zero, we arrived in the middle of the forest as if we were a fairly on water floating on the ground.

 

I took off the mask and swallowed a mouthful of the forest’s lush green air. The air in above the sky is good and all, but the forest with it's air full of life isn’t bad either.

 

While I was repeatedly breathing in and out, as I enjoyed the forest’s air, Balaina was curled up next to me as if she was dead.

 

I smiled bitterly and gently rubbed her back. Soon, she glared at me with a vengeful eyes.

 

“...Captain Kaito, please from now on, never treat me so crudely like that”

 

“My bad. I apologize alright. Now, use your nose to find the prey”

 

“...Haa~~~~~~~~~, Roger”


 

Balaina sighed a long one showing her dissatisfaction, stood up and started walking while sniffing. As expected of a wolf, her nose is powerful.

 

I followed along her swinging tail, cautiously inside the forest. Since we are in an early summer the lush green forest was hot, which made me think that maybe we won’t meet other adventurers. I don’t see any adventurer around, confirming my thought. I was ready to meet with at least few adventurers but it's unlikely that will happen.

 

While I was walking feeling healed by the cool breeze that occurs spontaneously, and the singing of the little birds, Balaina stopped by her feet. It seems like, we were able to encounter what we were searching for.

 

“Have you found it?”

 

“Yes. I smell a wild beast from over there”

 

“We are in leeward so we don’t have to worry about being noticed. Do you know what kind of beast it is?”

 

“I do not know much details about it but it smells a bit like a sweet flour like smell”

 

“That’s a smell of Rock Boar”

 

Fortunately, this season is a mating season for the Rock Boars. The male Rock boar will emate a sweet smell from its belly to lure the females Rock boars.

 

“Alright, it's what we are searching for. Let’s go with great caution”

 

From there,  we approached with stealthy steps, in fear of being detected. Soon enough, we saw an open place in front of us. I hid behind the tree’s shadow and Balaina lowered her self, so that we won’t be noticed by the opponent.

 

Found it. It's the Rock boar. As it's name indicate it is a boar with a rock like texture as it's skin, and it eating something along the line of a bug or a mushroom.

 

Rock Boar’s monster ranking is D. It's not without a danger, but it's relatively easy to hunt. However, it becomes super fast when it's running away, that’s why I must act with great caution.

 

It’s showing its back to us while we stayed 30 feet away from it. I unloaded my photon repulser from my belt, without making any sound and aimed at the boar’s body. This photon repulser is a gun that shoots electric particle. While it is small enough to use it in one hand, but it’s power is insane. If it’s shot with it's maximum power, even that Grand Holy Dragon that we met before would be easily killed.

 

Of course, hunting rock boar won't require it's maximum capacity, thus, I already lowered the setting to its lowest. Even with that, it would be able to penetrate its body and definitely can cause a deadly damage to the boar.

 

I breathed in and out to concentrate. With heightened concentration, I placed my finger on the trigger.

 

However, as I as just about to shoot---

 

“What do you guys want from me!? Please move out of the way”

 

We heard a young girl’s scream.

 

“Buhi---!?”

 

Rock boar was surprised by the voice and it dashed with ultimate speed.

 

“Not good! Balaina!”

 

Reacting to my voice, Balaina jumped in front of the Rock Boar. When we thought we were able to block it's escape route, the rock boar changed its direction, and disappeared to the depths of the forest.

 

“Shit! It escaped!”

 

I stumped on the floor out of frustration.

 

“That was close, Captain Kaito”

 

“Aa, your right. But I don’t care about that now”

 

“Ee, you are right”

 

We nodded toward each other and rushed to the direction where we heard the girl’s scream.

Chapter 8 Kaito Meets the Count of Blue Skies

“Captain Kaito, are you crying right now?”

 

I felt my cheeks. She was right, I was crying. It seems like against such a beautiful scenery, I became too emotional and tears flowed without my realization. Nonetheless this is truly a magnificent view to look at.

 

I must be the happiest man in the world to be able to hog this grand scenery all for myself. That’s why I felt like I wanted to feel the scenery through my body rather than looking at it from the distance.

 

“Balaina let's go out to the deck!”

 

“Are you heading to the outside?”

 

“Yup. There won’t any problem even at this height, if I expand the lifeform balancer right?”

 

Lifeform balancer is a expansive field that spans around around toyokumo, when enabled allows supporting lifeforms in that area. Inside this area, no matter what kind of environment, becomes human friendly.

 

“Since I have a human body, why don’t I enjoy life as a human”

 

“I see. Well then, I will bring a relaxation item.”

 

“That’s good. Let's bring a beach chair, drinks and a fishing rod.”

 

“A fishing rod?”

 

“Right. I’m thinking of fishing the cloud fish. I sensed the shadow of a fish”

 

That’s right, a fish is living in this sea of clouds. You won’t see them from the ground, but I heard that there are many who catches it and eats it when they are in a highly elevated mountains. From what I heard, it tastes amazing.

 

“If I successfully fish the cloud fish, I can stop relying on dog food. Especially with the fact that the crops harvest will take some more time.”

 

“I really love dog food”

 

“...of course you would be. But, I absolutely despise it.”

 

To improve my terrible meal, I must succeed in catching this cloud fish. Let’s all aim for, “DeDog Food”

[tlnote: not a real world, something like denuclearization. basically he wants to eat dogn’t food]

 

Through recycling system, I started creating necessary items from the left over materials. While I was in inputting process of the materials, Balaina came snooping towards me.

 

“Captain Katio, please create frisbee too”

 

“Frisbee? That disc that you throw? What are you going to use it as? ”

 

“Captain will throw the frisbee. I will run and catch it. It’s a game like that, so please play it.”

 

Balaina wiggled her tail as she spoke her request.

 

“I see. Are you perhaps, dog in your soul too?”

 

 

I went out into the deck while letting the things that was created be carried by the worker robot. We are in quite a high altitude, but thanks to lifeform balancer, a soft wind flows with a temperature that is just right, with a sparkling sun.

 

“U~n! So comfortable~!”

 

The very wide deck---above my back, I enjoy a mouthful of air. This is truly fantastic. Maybe I should build a house in here. While I was thinking about such, Balaina brought Frisbee with her mouth.

 

“He He He He”

 

“Hmm, What should I do. Firstly I should start fishing.”

 

“He He He He”

 

“No no, maybe I should extravagantly have an afternoon nap since the weather is so nice. ”

 

“He He He He”

 

“U~nn, it’s hard to decide. What should I do~”

 

“He He He He….. U~nn, Woof Woof! Woof Woof!”

 

I smiled bitterly at Balaina who were becoming impatient and barked.

 

“I understand, I understand! Alright, we will play frisbee first! Frisbee, alright!”

 

“....Captain kaito please do not make mistake in deciding the priority order of your work.”

 

“Shut up. Playing with your dog isn’t part of Captain’s job”

 

“I’m not a dog. I’m a wolf. A wolf”

 

Did Wolf even barked like that? They don’t bark right? …. Oh well, whatever. I felt stupid for even thinking so I just picked up the frisby and threw it far aawy.

 

“Go! Fetch~!”

 

“Woof Woof! Woof Woof Woof Woof!”

 

Towards the thrown frisbee, Balaina dashed like an arrow and chased it with a great speed. She caught it in the air and came back to me.

 

“He he he he”

 

“Good jo~b! Come, here’s another one! Go fetch~!”

 

“Woof Woof! Woof woof woof!”

 

I petted her head and threw the frisbee once more. Balaina chased after the frisbee once again. This scene was kinda cute and couldn’t stop myself from smiling widely. It was unexpectedly fun. It’s a kind of game that you wholly get absorbed in.

 

But I obtained a firm conviction.

 

“She definitely is a dog”

 

 

After enjoying frisbee with Balaina, I decided to fish for cloud fish.

 

The cloud fish feeds on the mana in the atmosphere, so a normal feed won’t be able to angle it. That’s why I used the shaved mana stone called a lure. I threw the lure into the cloud and rolled the reel slowly. I haven’t caught a single one but this should be the correct method.

 

Balaina seems to lack any interest in what I am doing as she laid face up and slept with a stupid face. I really wish she wouldn’t sleep with such a stupid posture and face, as it makes me sleepy as well.

 

“Even so, it’s really a nice weather. If I catch atleast one, I should nap too….Fua~”

 

I yawned as I felt supremly comfortable, however at that moment something pulled the rod.

 

“O, Ooo! Finally a hit!”

 

The cloud fish has a really strong pull. This is definitely a big hit. I pressured my leg as I tried to stop the fish from pulling my rod away, and I also rolled the reel in and out.

 

At this moment, as I was in middle of the fight.

 

Toyokumo’s radar detects a fast approaching flying organism.

 

“Wha, What is it!? What is coming!?”

 

I panicked as it was truly unexpected, and soon that organism was landing in front of me.

It was a lizard with a large wings and gigantic body. Yes, a dragon. On top of it, it has a pure white scale and a opal coloured horns. It was a grand holy dragon, a powerful dragon even among dragons. The Grand holy Dragon with it's jade green eyes looked at me and roared a roar that felt like it could shake the heavens..

 

Hiyeee! Such Immense pressure! I might wet myself!

 

“I am a holy dragon Israphel! The Count of Blue sky that reigns over hundreds of sacred mountains! For what reason and with what permission is a inferior species like you doing in this sky!? ”

 

The Grand Holy Dragon, Israphel questioned me while breathing out white flame from its mouth. From his story, it seems like this sky might be its territory.

 

“Eh, even if you ask me why,...ummm”

 

How should I answer for him to stop being angry? While I was thinking of a smart explanation, the string started moving violently.

 

“Oops, crap, this guy he is still full of energy!”

 

“Answer me Human! What is your reason for dirting my territory! ”

 

“No, it's that….uuuh, the pull is strong~!”

 

“First of all what in the world is this huge object!? Is it your tamed monster!?”

 

“Umm, it's not a tamed monster, it's more like my real body….uwawawa, the rod is!”

 

“Your real body? You aren’t a human! Who are you!?”

 

“Kuu! I won’t lose! Gugu…..it's that you know…..uuuh”

 

“You, are you playing with me!? Look at me when you are talking!”

 

I’m not trying to fool around or anything. I’m dead serious here. You could say I’m in a middle of the biggest fight in my entire life. If it was possible, I would like to concentrate wholly on the fight but, life doesn’t go as you wish it to.

 

I reluctantly, kicked Balaina in hopes of waking her up.

 

“Balaina, wake up! You deal with him!”

 

“....U~n, I will cover your entire body with a honey…..”

 

“What are you dreaming!? Just wake up! You useless dog!”

 

I kicked her multiple times but she doesn't seem to be waking up. Looking at the play in front of him Israphel's anger reached its peak.

 

“You foolish human! You dare make a fool out of me! YOU DESERVE DEATH”

 

As soon as shouted, a large amount of mana started to gather around in his mouth. This is no good! This is the famous “Breath”, the strongest attack of a dragon race.

 

And, the amount of magic gathering in it's mouth could destroy even a mountain. If that thing were to blast off, something really terrible would happen.

 

“Wait, don’t do it! This is dangerous! Let us all calm down first alrigh!”

 

“It’s too late! Turn into ashes!

 

My persuasion failed and the powerful flash was fired from its mouth. This immense attack was-----

 

Reflected towards Ispharel.

 

“Eh?”

Ispharel left a stupid surprised voice as he fell.

 

“Guaaaaaah!”

 

Israphel who was directly hit with the reflected “breath”, screamed in pain as he fell to the ground surface.

 

Well, if you were hit with that powerful breath, you would indeed fall like a trash.

 

“A~A, that’s why I said to stop it…..”

 

It did piss me off a little for him to suddenly attack me out of nowhere, but it was us who were in the bad as we intruded his territory without any permission. I hope he didn’t die.

 

As I was thinking, I realized one thing.

 

“Aah! The fish escaped!”

 

It seems like while I was distracted by the dragon’s attack, the fish escaped with the hook. Even though I worked so hard for it...God damn it.

 

“That shitty Dragon! If I meet you again, I will scold you till you cry!”

Chapter 7 Kaito flies the whale

“Well then, please unmount me since I will unlock the case”

 

I jumped off from Balaina’s back. Balaina, who was freed, rose on her own two feets and started doing stuff with her front legs on the glass case. Soon, the glass case automatically opened.

 

I undressed the figurine, and dressed myself with the uniform. The uniform was a bit too big for me as it was baggy but as soon as I buttoned all the buttons, it shrank to fit me. It seems this kind of function is installed on the uniform.

 

“What do you think? Do I look good?”

 

“Right. You look very good with it, Captain Kaito”

 

Balaina nodded to my question.

 


“Well, that’s great”

 

I smiled feeling satisfied. While I’m still not really used to being called a captain, but I guess I made some step forward.

 

“Alright, now that we found the clothes, it's time for the food”

 

“Understood. The Food refrigeration facility is located nearby. We will have to move, so please hop on the hover plate and follow me”

 

I hopped on the hover plate quickly so that I won't be left behind. Even so, I wonder what the food from the age of gods would be like? To my rising expectation, my mouth started drooling.

 

“This is the food?”

 

Balaina nodded as if it was natural to my question.

 

“This is the food. Is there some sort of a problem with it?”

 

“No, but, this….”

 

In the direction that I pointed, an unknown pellet filled in a transparent bag was there. In the Food refrigeration facility, this was piled up in countless amount. Nothing else. No meat. No, nothing.

 

“Is this tasty?”

 

“What is tasty or not is subjective as it differs people to people.”

 

“I know that but….”

 

It has this shape that doesn’t feel inviting at all, it's a bit too dull. Oh well, if there are so much of it, it must’ve been well liked by many people. It shouldn’t be terrible, and should contain high nutritive value.

 

I convinced myself with great difficulty and reached out my hand, grasping on the bag and teared it. I picked up the pellets that came out and put them in my mouth with great determination.


The texture is as it appears to be. The smell is comparable to the dried meat. As for the important taste…..how should I describe it….

 

“....it’s not disgusting but, it has a weird taste. If I stretch it, it would be something along the line of nuts?”

 

Balaina approached me who was in middle of processing what I was eating.

 

“Captain Kaito, can I have some too?”

 

“Oh, right. I’m sorry, I should’ve given you some too.”

 

I extend my hands filled with pallets towards her, and she crunched away at it. And in no time, it was all consumed, so I did the same thing again. Everytime she eats the pellets, she licks my hand, which nearly made me giggle multiple times.

 

“You are eating it as if it is delicious. Does it to your palette’s liking?”

 

“Ee, my palette loves it very much. It is delicious”

 

“Fu~n. Not to me though”

 

“I believe it can’t be helped since this wasn’t adjusted to human’s consumption”

 

“I see, if that’s so than it can’t be helped………. Wait?”

 

I could feel my cheeks flaring, after hearing something I can’t ignore.

 

“Miss Balaina? What do you mean by not adjusted to human’s consumption? Please, explain it to me in detail”

 

“In detail for?”

 

“....First thing first, what is this thing?”

 

“It is a dog food”

 

“Dog food? …..that is to say?”

 

“That is to say, it is a feed specially made for dogs. It is tasty wan!”

 

“Feed for the dogs!? You, what in the world are you!”

 

I grasped onto Balaina’s cheek that stretches pretty well, towards the worst answer.

 

“What do you mean tasty wan! Are you making fun of me!?”

 

“It is tasty wan! Is the name of the feed”

 

“I don’t care! Why are you feeding me the dog’s food!”

 

“Because there is no other food. Plus, it's not like humans would die from eating it”

 

Towards Balaina who explained nonchalantly without a shred of guilt, my anger kept on rising. That’s why, I scratched her soft heads and necks.

 

In reaction, as if she was feeling good, her eyes scrunched and her tongue drooping out. This support ai is no good. It’s becoming more and more dog like. I felt exasperated, therefore, I mounted on top of her.

 

“As a punishment, you will be my bed for today”

 

“Ku~n”

 

I ignored her dissatisfied roar and I closed my eyes. When I buried my face in her soft fur, drowsiness soon fell on me.

Chapter 6a Kaito wears the Captain's uniform (part A)

“Hou~, it’s really comfortable! This will be easy! ”

 

I’m moving through the ship’s inside with an amazing speed, searching for the clothes that I can wear. I’m not running but riding this amazing plank that floats in the air. It’s something Balaina found for me. According to her it is something the people who used to live in the ship, used to utilize as a method of transportation and called it a Hover plate.

 

“I wonder how the people from the past used to live like?”

 

“Are you curious about it? If so, you can connect to the database and search for the information fo the past, later?”

 

“To connect with the Database? I don’t really like it since it makes me feel sick, you see….”

 

I know by connecting to the database, it would be easy to find out the information, but to feel like vomiting every single time I try to find out the information, my feeble heart wouldn’t last long. Especially now that I have the physical body, I would really vomit next time I sync to the database.

 

That’s why I put it into a manual mode so I don’t accidentally link up. This thing called manual mode, is a preset mode in the system that suspends the automatic search function, and I learned this from the first time I linked to the database.

 

Wit this mode, unless I manually command it know something, it wouldn’t flush your brain with information.

 

“I would love to link up with the system more often if it wasn’t this burdensome”

 

“Then how about procuring information through a different method. I know of a good one”

 

“Hou, I wonder what it's like”

 

I’m interested but for now searching for the clothes is higher in the todo list.

 

How long have I been moving. Soon after, we found a relatively preserved residential district. Unlike the houses I know well of, these houses weren’t made of bricks or a wood, and had a shape of a rectangular box. For a moment, I thought that these lacked the atmosphere that radiates from culture.

 

“Do you I can find the clothes here?”

 

“I’m not sure but, there should be some worth in investigating the place”

 

I jumped out of the hover plate and started exploring the house with Balaina.

 

“Ouch. Since I’m walking in barefoot, the fragments on the floor is poking me and it's painful. I can’t use the hover plate indoor so I want to find shoes first.”

 

“If so, you can ride me”

 

With that said, Balaina came towards me who were brushing off splinters on my leg and leaned downward.

 

“Ou! That will help me by a lot. I will count on you”

 

I mounted on Balaina to presume upon her benevolence. Despite added weight Balaina started walking with strong balance and without fumbling around. The feeling of her fur feels comfortable without it being prickly at all. A normal wolf wouldn’t have such soft furs, maybe it was created this way on purpose.

 

“Unn, There is none that I can actually wear”

 

We’ve already went through around four houses but found none of the clothes or shoes that we were searching for. There are clothes and shoes lying around but none are wearable with them being far too worn out.

 

As expected, I could find none that I can wear…. Even then, I can’t just walk around butt naked.

 

“Ah, this place”

 

As I entered my tenth house feeling down and worried, Balaina stopped by her feet so I tilted my neck in confusion.

 

“What is it? Did something happen?”

 

“This house is where the previous fleet captain used to live”

 

“Wha..for real?”

 

Towards this new information I couldn’t help but sigh with deep emotion. What can I say, Isuzu is the one who made me the current fleet captain of this ship.

 

How did she live 30 thousand years ago? Extraordinary primeval time - the age of gods. At a time when the civilization reached its peak, and owning this outrageous powerhouse that is, toyokumo, I wonder what she thought and accomplished.

 

I felt that I wanted to know more about Isuzu. However, to my surprise, her house was similarly worn down and collapsing just like other houses and leaving behind nothing that indicates her power.

 

I thought so but---

 

“Captain Caito, I’ve found it”

 

It was enshrined in the bedroom closet. A clothes dorn by the figurine, protected by a glass case.

A rather narrow and tight white jacket and pants. There is even the boots.

 

“This is man’s costume, but it does look awfully similar to the one worn by Isuzu”

 

“It is a uniform that the father of Isuzu, the former fleet captain wore. She must have placed the clothes on the spatial safekeeping device before leaving the ship. ”

 

“The uniform for Isuzu’s father? But, why would she do that?”

 

“I believe it is the same reason as to why they left the ship as it is”

 

“The same reason? Now that I think about it why did Isuzu left Toyokumo for someone to take?”

 

“Because it is her family”

 

I became surprised at Balaina’s words.

 

“Family? What do you mean?”

 

“To former captain, this ship that she was together for her entire life, was something that of a family to her. That’s why she didn’t want to put her into eternal sleep, and to let the ship wake up one day by someone.”

 

“I see.It’s an attachment, huh.”

 

“Yes if you put it plainly. That uniform, is the uniform for her beloved father and therefore has the same sentiment as to why it was left behind.”

 

“....I see”

Chapter 5 Kaito faces his Younger Self

I was guided by Balaina to the vivisection lab in order to restore my body.While on the way I was able to have a better look at the inside of the ship. In the corridor, there was a place like that of a shop, open plaza and even a residential area. Currently the places are in shambles but, It must’ve been a once crowded with people.

 

Now that I think about it, I’m currently moving through my own insides right? When you think about it, it feels kinda weird.

 

“We’ve arrived. This place is the vivisection lab. The restoration process has already began”

 

The place Balaina brought me in was a place filled with metallic casket like objects and complicated machinery. Most of the caskets seems to be open with nothing inside it, but , some is still in operation with it's lid closed.

 

“So is that the one?”

 

“Yes, that is the one. After about 1 hour it will be completed”

 

“One hour huh, It takes a bit of time.”

 

I got bored soon after, therefore I decided to float around wanderlessly.

 

Nevertheless, I’ve truly landed myself in a crazy situation. It’s not like I was forced to do anything or swore on any duty, but because so many things happened at once, my mind is just not being able to keep up.

 

For now, I should start slow and understand each things one by one.I didn’t become the hero like in the legends given the duty to eliminate the demon king. I should just think slowly and without any hurry, on what I’m going to do from now on.

 

To my surprise, while I was arranging my thoughts, I heard a footstep from behind. When I turned around to look at it, I saw a black wolf.

 

“Eeh!? Why is there a wolf in here!?”

 

“Please do not panic, Captain Kaito. It's me. Balaina”

 

“Balaina? Wh, why are have you become a wolf?”

 

“As I saw it as a good opportunity to create my own physical body, due to the convenience it creates in supporting you, the master; I searched for a body in the lab, and found that wolf was the only one that was properly refrigerated therefore I chose it.”

 

Bailain talked seamlessly with her mouth of the wolf in her new form.

 

“...Hee. How do you feel being inside a physical body?”

 

“It’s a wolf. Nothing more nothing less.”

 

What do you mean by it’s a wolf. I really wanted to retort but felt it to be too troublesome so I decided not to.

 

“Right, right, I forgot to inform you of something important”

 

I tilted my head, since Balaina saw a sudden change of tone.

 

“What is this, important information?”

 

“Indeed, Captain Kaito’s body will be restored. However, that body will only be a substitute body. Captain Kaito must understand that your real body is still and will be Toyokumo.”

 

“Your putting a strong emphasis on this. Is there some sort of problem with entering a new body?”

 

“It's hard to put it into words, but to put it simply, it may create a discrepancy. Please understand this through feeling.”

 

“To rely on feeling...isn’t it something important”

 

To Balaina’s vague words, I smiled bitterly, but I somewhat understood what she was trying to say. Basically, your trying to say that I’m no longer a human, right. So I should live with that in mind and live with this consequence.

 

Soon after, the restoration process for my body completed. The casket with a smoke, opened and from inside, a young boy appeared. It was the fifteen years old me.

 

“This is me from me during fifteen years old. …. Did I really had this kind of face?”

 

Even though I said that, it's not like I remember my appearance from 2 decades ago. With difficulty I could find parts that were similar to the current me, but mostly it felt completely like a different person. He looked like an unreliable youth, with a gender neutral face and a thin waist.

 

I do not know whether it's because of the influence from the restoration process or not, my ginger  hair seems to be overgrown, to the point that maybe if a person didn’t look at the crotch, they might  confuse me for a girl.

 

“Is this really me from my time as 15 years old…. Did I really look like this….”

 

“What is it, is there a problem?”

 

“No, it’s fine, there is no problem”

 

“Well then, for attaching the soul, we will use the system from this ship. Captain Kaito can just relax”

 

“Al, alright. I will leave it up to you”

 

As soon as Balaina closed her eyes as if sending telepathic command, my surrounding started to illuminate strongly.

 

“O, Oi. It's flashing weirdly, is this really fine?”

 

“It is fine. It will end soon. Please relax, you must be calm and relax your mind”

 

If you tell me to relax repeatedly, it make me rather unable to relax…. Ignoring my complaint,the light is getting stronger.

 

“Well then, the soul will attach to you. It might hurt a little but please bear with it.”

 

“Eh, it will hurt!? I didn’t hear about this!”

 

“Astral Body Metastasis system commence!”

 

“Hey don’t ignore me! Wait! Ouch, ouch ouccchhhhhh!”

 

In the next instant, my body was pervaded by an intense feeling of pain. What do you mean by little! It feels like my whole body is being pierced by thousands of needles!

 

“It f*cking Hurtsssssssssss!”

 

I screamed with all my might, being unable to endure the torture. That scream went a little high pitched for a man.

 

 

It seems like I’ve successfully attained the body. I can feel my feet touching the ground, and felt cold due to the outside temperature. As I got out of the casket, Balaina approached me.

 

“You are able to walk it seems. The attachment of the soul has been successful”

 

“...seems so”

 

I answered with a voice like that of a young girl, and scrutinized my body once more. I opened my palm and closed it repeatedly and jumped up and down. Despite the body looking so unreliable, I don’t really feel uncomfortable. RAther, I feel better in this new body than my old one. I feel like my body is lighter than ever, as if a wing grew on my back, and knowing that this is coming from my youth, I can’t help but feel happy.

 

“Captain Kaito, you must’ve took a liking to it”

 

“Your right, It's nicer than I thought it would be. It’s just that...”

 

I glared at balaina with grudge.

 

“Next time, tell me sooner if something will hurt or not”

 

“I will keep that in mind.”

 

I sighed to her blunt answer. I guess it's a waste of time to try and teach empathy to non-human.

 

Nevertheless----

 

“Achoo!...uuu, sneeze came out”

 

It's cold. Not to the point of shivering but, it's unbearable temperature to be in naked. If I stay like this I might catch a cold.

 

“Balaina, where did the clothes with the corpse go”

 

“I wonder what happened to it?”

 

“....Ha? No no, what do you mean?”

 

“Unn, Most probably, since it has been put together with the body inside the capsule, so it might’ve assimilated with the body during the process of reconstruction”

 

Hearing the truth, I was struck speechless. I understand if the clothes are gone, but is it really alright for the clothes to merge together with my body? I want to believe that it's fine….

 

“Oh well, let bygones be bygones, nothing I could do about it. So, is there any other clothes I can wear?”

 

“I’m have no knowledge, whether the clothes remained. This is because, according to the surrounding soil quality, it has been over 30 thousand year ever since the ship went into hibernate state.”

 

“So most of them became tattered with time...”

 

“However, we just might be able to find it on the data, but we might be able to find some if we search for them”

 

“So, basically I need to explore is what your telling me”

 

Thinking so, maybe it's because of my job as an adventurer, I couldn’t help but feel excited. Especially, we are going to explore the ship from the age of gods, it would be weird if I don’t feel excited.

 

I have a bit of resistance against walking around naked, but worrying about is weird when you keep in mind that this place is a space with no other people or even living organism.

 

“I understand. Then, let's go search for it. Aah, also is there food on board?”

 

“I’ve confirmed that there are food stored in the storage refrigeration. It has been stored in a frozen condition, there for to eat it is no problem..”

 

“Ou, that’s great”

 

Food is the most essential element in survival. I’m sure I won’t die because I’ve already merged with the ship, but it would be inconvenient if I can’t maintain my physical body. After clearing my worry, my motivation for the exploration increased.

 

“Yosh! Lets go Balaina!”

 

To my shout, Balaina answered with a howl.

Chapter 4 Kaito Fusions with the Whale

“...even though I said that, you wouldn’t know what I’m talking about”

 

I nodded multiple times in agreement to Isuzu’s statement. Right, I have no clue what you are saying.

 

“To be precise, I wasn’t waiting for you specifically”

 

“...If so, then what do you mean by your earlier statement”

 

“What I waited for was a worthy heir to this, Intergalactic immigration ship Toyokumo. I was able to perceive that you fit the criteria for this ship after you’ve touched the orb. That’s why, against the suspension system, this program with proxy captain authority to interrupt it. ”

 

“I am worthy to inherit this ship?”

 

“What I put as a prerequisite is three things. Firstly, to not have any intention of misusing this ship. Secondly, to own a heart that is stable and empathetic to other people. Last but not the least, the final prerequisite is to have a problem that one wishes to solve. These are the three requirements”

 

I tilt my head in confusion to the requirements raised by Isuzu.

 

Isuzu continued after showing me her white teeth.

 

“Right, there isn’t really any special requirements. To put it bluntly, as long as you aren’t a bad person, and that the person must find some use with the power of this ship, anyone would’ve been fine”

 

“...eeehhh”

 

It's not like I had any expectations or anything, but it make me feel complicated after hearing that anyone was fine.

 

“Whatever it may be, if you have the will to, I can register you through this program as a captain of this ship. If we do this, than I’m sure your problem can be solved easily This Toyokumo, has that amount of power equipped. ”

 

“Any, Anything is fine?”

 

Does it means that I can restore my crushed physical body? Wait, does that means I can be revived back? To this undeserving miracle, I could feel my whole body shaking in happiness.

 

“However, you must remember one thing”

 

“.....Eh?”

 

“By registering as a captain, your soul---the astral body, will assimilate to the Toyokumo’s main core. Simply, you will become the Toyokumo itself”

 

“...I become…. this ship?”

 

“Yes, and by then, you will be able to move the ship at your own will, and gain every knowledge stored in this database. But, I do not know whether this is a good thing or a bad thing for you.”

 

“What do you mean?”

 

“Because, to gain knowledge of something, also means you part with something…. I can’t tell you much more than this, since you are still considered an outsider. If you are still fine with the idea, than please touch the control orb once more.”

 

It made me ponder. According to Isuzu, there might be some knowledge that I would be better off without knowing. I can’t just brush it off, just because it's a knowledge. What can I say, it's a product of the ship that’s from legendary age of gods. To attain the entire knowledge of that era, it basically makes me an all knowing being.

 

Can I truly be sure that after gaining such a vast power, will I still be able to be who I currently am. I do not know the answer to it. But, I guess, I don’t have much of a choice, do I. If I stay as it is, I will become a ghost without consciousness.

 

That’s why I touched the crystal orb again. Soon, the ship’s voice reverted inside the room.

 

“The documentation for captain registration will commence…...Affirmation from all completed. From now on, Kaito is recognized as the administrator of this ship. Captain kaito, congratulation on your inauguration to your position. ”

 

“...eh, this is it?”

 

I don’t really feel the change. She was saying, about fusion and all that, so I thought there would be much more of a impact. Something, like an intense pain emerging…….

 

I looked at Isuzu after feeling a bit worried.

 

“O, Oi! Hey, are you alright!?”

 

To my surprise, Isuzu who were vivid, were becoming translucent as time went by.

 

“What in the world is happening to you right now!?”

 

“I’ve setted a self destruction setting on this program, when it becomes unnecessary”

 

“Self destruction...”

 

“Well then, have a wonderful journey. ”

 

Isuzu, really disappeared after leaving behind her last words. I who was left behind all alone, could only stand still feeling a little empty.

 

“even if you tell me that I became the captain, what am I supposed to do….”

 

 

I became curious and couldn’t just stay still, so I looked around. Isn’t there something that can do something about my current situation.

 

“Understood. Support a.i program will boot up”

 

“Oh? Saport eai?”

 

As soon as I tilted my head in confusion, a mysterious light orb appeared next to me.

 

“Nice to meet you, Captain Kaito. I am the ship Toyokumo’s support a.i called Balaina. From now on I will be you, Captain kaito’s assistant. ”

 

Is what the light orb called Balaina told me. Even if you said so, what the heck is Saport eai. And once again, as soon as I finished thinking so, an unknown stream of knowledge flooded my mind all at the same time.

 

“...Guu, wha, what is, this?”

 

I feel sick...if I had a physical bod I would’ve already vomited.

 

“Fumu. It seems like you have just commenced a connection to the database. If you aren’t used to it, it might have some bad effect on your spirit, so please be cautious”

 

“....Even if you say so, I didn’t know what I was doing”

 

“If that is true, then have my condolence, it is can’t be helped. But, thanks to that, you have attained enough knowledge to utilize me right?”

 

“We, well, somehow, yeah”

 

I haven’t been able to sort out the new information and there are some parts that are confusing, but simply put, Support a.i, is basically a familiar that assists you many ways. It seems like it will do anything as long as I command it to.

 

With that understood, I decided to give out a command to Balaina.

 

“Alright, Balaina. It might be a bit too sudden, but I have a request for you”

 

“What is it?”

 

“In truth, I have already died, and is just a existence with only a soul. Therefore, I’m thinking about restoring my body to what it used to be, after collecting my corpse from outside. ”

 

“I see. So where is the definitive location of the corpse?”

 

“Right…..where was is around?”

 

I moved my head to look at the right side without much thought, suddenly the outside scenery became visible.

 

“Wah! What is it!? I can look at outside!?”

 

“Captain, you’ve already fused together with the ship, therefore if you wish to look, you are able to utilize the 360 camera equipped in the ship as a replacement for your eyes.”

 

“Aa, I see. ”

 

So right now I’m looking at things through the whale’s eyes. I moved my eyes by acting like moving my neck, and found my corpse on the ground.

 

“I found it? It's over there!”

 

“You’ve found it. Then, I will also look at it through the camera”

 

“Do you see it? It's there right”

 

“Eeh, it seems so. Then, let out the Worker robot to collect it”

 

“Robot is...hmmm...aah, it’s something along the line of a golem”

 

I came to this conclusion after searching through information gained from the database.

 

“That is about right. It is a clay like doll that is created according to its use. I will control it so Captain Kaito can just sit back and watch”

 

I continued looking just like I was told, and saw a large silver crab appear from the Toyokumo’s abdomen area that opened. So that is the worker robot.

 

Crab? I wonder why it's a crab? I’m not complaining, it's just a sense that I don’t understand. The crab walked with it's six legs making gashan gashan sound, and collected my corpse in dextile manner with it's two craw, bringing it back to the ship.

 

“So what’s the next move?”

 

“It will be brought into the Vivisection Lab, and the process of restoration will begin. But….”

 

“But?”

 

“Due to the lack of material, it will be difficult to restore it completely to its original image”

 

“Eee!? Than, what will happen to my body!?”

 

“It will shrink. The former Captain Kaito’s bodily age seems to be late 30 in age, but after the restoration its body will be a size of that 15 years old.”

 

“Fifthteen? It will turn that young?”

 

“I’m sure you will have complaints, but I hope you have an understanding to our current situation”

 

I pondered. 15? My body will turn back to 15? Uuum, I don’t know what to say? But...I can’t not accept the offer.

 

“Alright. Do as you please”

 

“Understood. I will make an arrangement for the process to start ”

 

So, fiftheen years old eh. What kind of brat was I?

Chapter 3 Kaito Awakens the Whale from the Age of Gods

“Leviathan” a hyper gigantic monster that inhabits deep seas. Also known as “Whale”. I haven’t seen an actual whale in my life, but that object looked awfully similar to the one depicted in the drawings.

 

It has two fins on its chest area and as a tail, just like any other fish, its stomach bloated in a rather oval shape with stripes lining from chest area to it's tail, it displays its grandeur unlike other fishes.

 

Yup, definitely a whale. But, what is a whale doing here? This place is quite a distance away from the sea. It's not like it walked all the way here. I don’t really understand, but I couldn’t help but feel curious. I decided to temporarily stop going outside the dungeon, and approached the whale.

 

When you look at it up close, it's as expected, humongous. Too huge. It's large to the point you can probably create a town on its back. The surface is white and smooth, making one wonder if it has fossilized. I realized one thing after circling around while observing it.

 

“Eh, why is there an entrance?”

 

It was located in the blowhole, right on the head of the whale. It is said to allow whales to splash water. It was not a spherical hole as depicted but a round door with a knob.

 

“Is this not a whale, but rather a ship?”

 

But, this kind of giant ship is impossible to be built with the current human.  Than, it must be built during the mythical age of gods without a doubt. To the revealed truth, my curiosity grew.

 

“Alright! Lets enter it!”

 

The door seemed to be secured with heavy security, but fortunately, or so I might say, currently my body doesn’t have a material body, therefore can enter through basically anything. The insides were dark since the light from the magic stone doesn’t reach here. However, I can feel what and where the things are. This must be one of the abilities of the ghost.

 

As expected inside the ship, were a corridor for humans to walk in. For now, I decided to go to the steering room. After searching mindlessly for a couple of minutes, I found the door that clearly showed that it was the steering room. I inflate my already stopped heart full of hope, and pass through the door.

 

There was a light on the other side of the door. The room’s wall was all made out of glass, allowing light from the outside to enter. This place must be the whale’s head. I thought since this was an ancient ship from the ages of god, would contain something unique or special, but unexpectedly it was rather a refined nicely with not much to say. One thing that stood out was the crystal ball on top of the desk in center of the room. Even then, it doesn’t really radiate any speciality or anything. But if you ask if I’m curious about it or not, I would say yes. That’s why I placed my hands on it despite knowing I can’t really touch it.

 

At that moment----

 

“Control ball has confirmed its contact with an astral energy pertaining it's consciousness”

 

A woman’s voice, suddenly rang out from the ball.

 

“Eh, what!? W, who is it!?”

 

I got surprised and searched around me, but there was no one here. But the shapeless voice, continued speaking in the room.

 

“Operating system is being processed to boot up….Operating system’s launch successful…..Process of system check up will start…… The ship is unable to move due to insufficient energy amount”

 

“Wha, what is it saying?”

 

“Meagre amount of astral energy found surrounding the ship’s main body. According to the emergency maintenance command, energy absorption will be facilitated through existing energy ”

Right as the voice finished it's sentence, the surrounding magic stones emitted powerful and blinding light. The light lasted for an instant, but at the same time magic stones seems to have lost its luster. Did all those magic stone really just disappear?

 

“Absorption of Astral energy completed. Energy necessary to activate the dimension connector system has been met. The Dimension conector system will boot up.  Dimension connector system, all green. Supplying energy to all the system will start.”

 

The voice continued on speaking with words I could hardly grasp. Of course, I have no clue as to what is happening. But,the change brought about bewildered me.

 

“....it's a light”

 

A light lit inside the room rather than an outside light like the magic stones or the sunlight. On top of it, it's lux level is unlike that of magic stone, it's as if there is a direct sunlight hitting the room.

 

I don’t understand much, but one thing I realized. I awakened the ship by me touching the crystal. This fact has weirdly made me feel emotional.

 

“All system, all green. The ship can take off at any moment”

 

“O, Oo, I see…. Go, good job”

 

I nodded in approval as I went by the flow. Most likely, the voice I hear is a voice of the ship itself. I can at least understand this much. But, I still don’t know what to do. Is it possible for me to actually make this ship my own? If I could, than that would be a really cool thing to have but….

 

“However, command authority has yet to be updated. Please, make a formal documentation and registration for the ship’s captain. If there there has been no registration by 1 minute, the ship will once again enter the period of suspension. 60,59,58,57... ”

 

Unfortunately, the ship’s voice started saying these things.

 

“Suspension? Is it going back to sleep? Why...what a waste... ”

 

Despite saying that, it's not like a person like me who has an absolute zero knowledge about it can do anything about the situation. Even if I could, I’m currently a ghost. What am I to do after acquiring the ship, it's not like I can use it or anything, since I’m not a human. I sigh in loss.

 

In the next instant

 

“28,27…..A program has invaded the system. A video recording stored in the database will be played.”

 

The ship suddenly stopped counting down. And out of nowhere, a girl doned in white dress with black hair appeared in front of me. She radiates wisdom with her beautiful appearance with slender body.

 

“Nice to meet you, I am Toyokumo’s 35th generation captain, Isuzu Kazahaya”

 

“Wh, who, are you!?”

 

Isuzu smiled delicately while looking at me who shouted in absolute surprise.

 

“I have been waiting for your arrival for a long period of time”

Chapter 2 Kaito Dies and Becomes a Ghost

The next day, I went to the dungeon as usual to search and pickup the magic stone. This place, commonly referred to as Ant’s nest, used to house a Gladiator Ant, a high ranking monster, but as of currently, it operates as a large maze like dungeon.

Graditor ant itself, has already been subjugated but the mana that has leached to underground from its corpse is producing mana stones. Even then, a big catch is scarce and lately, there has been a large decline in the adventurer who comes here, and most of the days I’m the only one here. Thanks to that, I can earn stable income and all, but the amount is decreasing every day.

“Aa~ Aa~, Man, how I wish I could find a big catch like yesterday”

I know saying it out loud wont do anything, but I can’t help myself. However, I don’t feel a shred of regret for giving the money to Sena. What really hurts is after giving her the money and visiting the tavern, I’ve probably spent a little too much. I ordered as much alcohol and meal and enjoyed as much as I can, by the time I noticed this tragedy has already occurred.

 

I should really repair the damage done by yesterday or else if I were to suddenly get injured or anything, my living standard will see a huge dip. This is one thing I can’t not do anything.

 

“Even then, It felt really amazing to eat that much meat in so long…..”

 

“Man, I really want to spend luxuriously like yesterday……… Alright, let's go search deeper today”

 

There would a lack of motivation if I were to work with a goal of saving the money. I continue picking the magic stones while going down the stairs with torch on one hand. On the way, I’ve encountered several monsters like slimes and ropers but, they were easily dealt with. While working hard here and then, I was able to gather quite a lot of magic stone.

 

Even then, it's not enough to refill the gap created by yesterday’s mistake. Oh well, if I work at this pace for a few more days, I would probably be able to take a breather. I felt a cold air and shuddered at a sudden change in atmosphere, just as I was about to turn back to leave.

 

“Wha, What’s happening?”

 

What awaited after the sudden mysterious bad feeling was a powerful shaking.

 

“Shit! Is it an Earthquake!”

 

The earth kept on shaking with powerful force, making me unable to stand on my own two feet as I fell on my knees. Not good, this earthquake is huge. If this continues, the dungeon may collapse and I might die in the debrees.  I need to get out as soon as possible.

 

However, as I tried to get on my two feet, I felt the ground disappear. I started falling in an instant, I couldn’t even shout for help or gasp for air. Right, because of the earthquake the ground crumbled apart.

 

As I fell into the dark abyss, entirety of my life flashed passed me. For some mysterious reason, I felt no fear or even anxious. Aah, it might be because, my mind has already realized that there is no point of return, and my death is inevitable. All I felt was sadness for my unrewarding life. I who fell from the height that even a soft surface wouldn’t be able to save me, crushed my body and I died.

 

 

The head’s inside has leaked outside, while all my arms and legs are broken as it looked at random direction. I floated as I watched my tragic body’s condition.

 

“This is awful. So this is how human will turn out to be after falling from a high height”

 

I subconsciously spilt a comment that were more like talking about other people’s business, and proceeds to scrutinize my current situation. My body is this floating little transparent bulb.

 

“Did I actually went and became a ghost…..”

 

A living organism’s soul, without its original container would disperse, but in an environment with high mana concentration, there exists cases where the soul turns into a ghost, an undead type monster.

 

In reality, the place where I dropped the ant’s nest’ underground, has comparatively high mana concentration. It's to the point where a crystalized mana, the magic stones spread far and wide, and covers the entirety of the wall. From the high quality of the stone, a fleeting light enables a visibility in this enormous space with no external light reaching.

 

I subconsciously thought that if I sold all this high quality magic stones, it would make a huge sum of money, but in the end it's of no business to me who has already died.

 

“.....For now, I should try and do something about it”

 

If a soul that has transformed into a ghost stays as it is, it will lose consciousness and starts attacking the other living organisms. I definitely do not want to be such a disturbing and damning creature.

Only people who can actually repair the current predicament would be the priests or the saint. I should get out of here while my sanity is still intact and gain help from them. They are the servants of god so as long as I cry and beg they should help out.

 

With that decided, let's get the hell out. I looked up at the hole I fell from and consciously told my body to float higher. Soon enough, my body accelerated higher and higher. Good, with this I might actually be saved. I could confirm since, I’ve listened and talked with a priest who experienced long-term contact with a human soul turned ghost.

 

It was true that ghost could fly as they please. Just like that, I’ve risen to quite a height. I suddenly got curious. I looked down without much thought, and to my great surprise a great discovery was made.

 

“What in the world is that….”

 

It was something I thought of, as a wall. But, when I looked at it from the high height, I realized it wasn’t a wall rather some humongous object. From this height, the whole body is blurry but, I can make an educated guess that it is a ship, with the outline.

 

No, it's more like a

 

“...whale”

 

than a ship?

Chapter 1 Kaito Saves Feline girl

It has been over 2 decades, ever since I’ve established myself as an adventurer.

 

Despite the adventurer's alias, “those who chase dream eternally”, the actual term of active service is relatively short. What do you expect, your selling your body for the work. As an adventurer you go subjugating, demons or bandits, searching for treasures in the dungeon. These kind of dangerous jobs, where you can lose your life anytime, becomes difficult as you age.

 

Successful ones are those who saved their earning in their early days and enters an early retirement. Those who couldn’t, would live paycheck to paycheck, risking their lives everyday for their entire life.

 

Of course, me, who’s still an adventurer at 35, is the latter of the two. After twenty years of being an adventurer, I’m still ranked D, a rank 2nd from the bottom. Even if I were to search through my entire belonging, I won’t even find enough money to retire.

 

At this point of time, I just can’t find a new job, and there is no place for me in my hometown located in the countryside.  In the first place, I became an adventurer because I couldn’t inherit the farming land in regards to the fact that I’m a second oldest son of the house.

 

To be frank, I’m at a point of time, where I live only to age.

 

But, nothing could be done being whiny. Plus, as long as you live to my fullest, sometimes a good thing may happen.

 

 

“According to the appraisal result, this Magic Stone is worth 30 Gold Coin”

 

Reception lady at Adventurer guild smiled as she said so. My fist sized red magic stone laid on the counter. Magic Stone is a crystalized mana born out of dead magical beasts. It is most found in the places like dungeons with high mana concentration, and is used as a catalyst for magic and alchemy.

 

These stones are an important pay out for me who don’t have as much stamina as I used to. That’s why I’m used to collecting and cashing it but….

 

“30 Gold Coins!?”

 

I shouted unconsciously due to the surprising price named by the guild. Yeah, to a certain extent, this rock is relatively bigger, and the colour is beautiful. However, for it to get a 30 gold coin appraisal...is extraordinary.

 

“Right..Was it not to your liking? But, according to today’s rate….”

 

“No, I’m very satisfied! Please cash it out immediately!”

 

As I consented on the trade, receptionist girl smiled and nodded and brought out the gold coins and leather bag.

 

“This is the money for purchasing the item. Please receive it”

 

The leather bag that I received, were scarily heavy. It’s my first time in my entire life to hold onto a leather bag filled with gold coin. Usually I only receive at most 3 silver coins for the entire day of work. With the current rate of coin price, thirty silver is roughly equal to one gold, so to think I’ve earned 300 times the usual earning in a day, is astounding.

 

(This is amazing, the happiness is making my heart pound rapidly)

 

With 30 gold coins, I would be able to buy and replace these shabby sword, shield and even my leather armour. Equipment to an adventurer is a life line. I was always feeling uneasy, but with this I can finally feel at rest. Even after buying all that, I will still have enough to live for half a year without having to work.

 

I truly is a gift sent from heaven.

 

(Thank you God!)

 

 

I left for the pub as I hopped out of the Adventurer’s guild. It wouldn’t be so bad to celebrate the day with great feast and drink for a celebratory day like this. While I was walking with warm bosom and great feeling, some stranger blocked the way, out of nowhere.

 

“Oh? Do you have any business with me?”

 

It was a young girl wearing hood, hiding her entirely of head. Her slanted eyes gave her a rather cute build. But, she ain’t a human. Her hood has a bump, seemingly from her beastly ears. Beast man… I knew instantly that she was a feline girl from her cat like facial feature.

 

“What is it? I won’t know what's up with you being quiet like that”

 

“Um, that….”

 

“Ou”

 

“I, I hope you can spare me some money? ”

 

“Tch, I knew it was just some beggar. If you want some money, go ask someone who actually look like they have money. Now, stop blocking the road”

 

“Pl, Please wait!!”

 

The young girl pulled  my hand that was trying to move her. This made me nearly fall as i lost balance, and made me irritated.

 

“What the hell are you doing! Take your hands off me!”

 

“I, I’m sorry! But, I really need the money!”

 

“Ha? So what?”

 

“Please I beg you! I will do anything!”

 

Saying so, the young girl tried pressing her breast onto the hand that she took ahold of. I felt my heart pound for the soft feeling, but pushed it off instantly.

 

“Stop it! A brat like you shouldn’t be doing that!”

 

“I, I’m sorry….but I can’t do anything else”

 

The girl became teary eyed as I scolded her. It made me feel uncomfortable to see, her pitiful appearance.

 

“...Ha. I don’t really get it, but just don’t sell you body. You will just catch some disease and die early. If your beast man just go back to the forest and live there.”

 

“...Even if we go back to the forest, there is no longer a place for us to live. It’s because, every land is managed by the humans. So we are just going to be driven out”

 

I exclaimed foolishly to her answer.

 

Right, I forgot. Since the new king rose to power last year, a large scale business cultivation began, so the beastman who were living in the forest lost their habitat. Even those forests that is yet to be developed, are managed by the country’s administration as they are considered the country’s territory. Even the small locations that are still left are a place utilized by the adventurers as a place to hunt and extract resources, so not a suitable place to live in. There is no longer a place for these beastmen to live like they used to.

 

“...how much do you need?”

 

I asked without giving it much thought. The girl showed a surprised expression and looked at me in upturned eyes.

 

“...Thirty Gold coin”

 

“Thirty Gold Coin!? Why do you need so much!?”

 

“I, I’m sorry! I don’t really understand the human’s money...”

 

“Even then, thirty gold coin is impossible. Till now no one has ever complained to you?”

 

“This is my first time selling my body….”

 

“I see. At this town’s rate, around 3 silver for a night is about right.”

 

“...3 silver for one night”

 

The young girl repeated my words in low voice, as if to memorie it.

 

“Th, then, how many days should I work to earn 30 gold coin?”

 

“You really put some great emphasis on that 30 gold coin. Well,  around 300 days I might say. Oh well, if you count in the days you can’t work due to circumstances than, around a year would be right.”

 

“One year!? No! Than it will be too late!”

 

To her flustered appearance, I might’ve understood something.

 

“It seems like there is some sort of reason for that 30 gold coins. If your fine with it, tell me about it”

 

“....The truth is, I have a younger sister who is sick. We asked the doctor of this town to look at her, and he told me she only have 6 months. That I needed 30 gold coins in order to heal her...”

 

The young girl’s shirt were dripped tears by the time she came to her last sentence. It's not abnormal for her to cry, when her sister is on verge of death and were told that it was practically impossible to save her life.

 

However, most likely, 30 gold coin is not an actual price. It's probably that doctor named the price because she is a beast man.

 

This kind of discrimination is happening all over as if it was a normality. Rather, the fact that the doctor did the examination, in itself can be considered a great charity.

 

I felt pity for them. Coupled with the fact that it was us humans who drove them to their current situation. And right now, I have 30 gold coins in my hand. Some part of me doubts that this is way too well done to be real. Especially since, I even shouted the fact that I acquired the 30 gold coins. It's rational to think that she who heard of it, is trying to scam me out.

 

But, even if that was the case I think it would be fine. Even if this was supposedly a scam, we humans are the ones who drove them to this point. I’m fine even if she didn’t have a sick younger sister, in the end it's better for her to keep the money. That’s why, I gave the leather bag with golds inside to her.

 

“Receive it well brat, there is exactly 30 gold coins inside”

 

“......eh? Eh!? Why!?”

 

“I’m just feeling generous today. See ya”

 

I decided to leave, as I left behind the surprised young girl. The young girl tried to chase after me but, as I enter the main road, she could only try and stop me through her voice as crowd surround us.

 

“Wa, wait! I, I haven’t done anything!”

 

Right, I didn’t ask her to do anything. But, we did. We took away your only place you could call home. That’s why this is how it should be. No more, no less.

 

“I will definitely return this debt! At least tell me your name!”

 

I waved back to her shout, while I accelerated my steps.

 

“M, My, My name is Sena! Um, Thank you very much!”

 

Sena, I see. Nothing’s wrong with me remembering her name. I have done nothing to warrant her gratitude. But, I felt my shoulder becoming lighter. That’s why, even thought I lost the money, I still went to the tavern. The really cooled Ale and a resin filled meat cuisine, is a great combination.
